I can't log into TV Go via the app on either ipad or android or via browser. I can login perfectly fine to myvirginmedia and my mobilemyaccount. I can even select the Virgin TV GO link via my virginmedia which takes me to the TV GO sign in. On the ipad I'm running Ios 12.1, I'n uninstalled and reinstalled the app (incidentally seems unstable at times and flashes/flickers badly).
I get a username or password incorrect error and then asked to click on the I'm not a robot link which just seems to present you pictures to click for ever without doing anything
I've spent the past 2 fruitless hours on the phone getting bounced around and getting through to second line technical support (eventually!!) only to get dropped before they could root cause.
Anyone else got this problem. I see it pops up periodically but I am completely locked out on any platform.
I don't want to waste any more of my life on this but considering I'm spending >£130 month with Virgin the is **bleep** poor.
Having got the problem solved I should probably give an update.
So bear in mind my login and password was always correct naturally one is nonplussed when your login and password is rejected and you are then told to click on the "I am not a robot" button and then select multiple images of shopfronts or traffic lights...screen after screen. This I did but frankly by the 4th or 5th screen I just aborted - well why wouldn't I, I'm already thinking something is broken and I'm not stuck in an endless security loop.
Thankfully the second line line support guy who I got through to after 2 hours of phone calls did persevere and to whom I had given my login and password and hey presto it actually worked.
Ok, so you could blame my stupidity for not keeping going buy I think there are two issues here and I could be excused for what happened.
1) Clearly Virgin had not fully tested the "user experience". I don't know quite why the "I am not a robot" security layer was so over zealous. I think 2 screens max should have been what I was displayed with not half a dozen. One could also ask the question. If my login and password wascorrect why the heck was it rejected in the first place and why was I subjected to this idiotic security protocol.
2) This scenario was clearly not in the first line support playbook. But then again if they had tested the user experience out as per #1 then it would have been.
So the next time on any app you get asked to identify all the squares with a shop front etc.....just keep going...and going....and going....and just maybe the application will let you in.
PS At least it is gratifying that Rose_B who seems to work for Virgin is monitoring the forum and private messaged me in an effort to resolve. Next time though...just make sure the application is tested from the user point of view.
everytime im trying to log on it says log in using your main user account sub accounts cant log in ive spent all morning on the darn phone being passed ffrom pillar to post and quite frankly i am very annoyed because three tech people hung up on me
